    Ok so after weeks of enlisting a friends help to photoshop these, changing colors, wording, font size etc and having an emotional bride meltdown over colors (becuase I am not sure other than pink what colors I want in my wedding and although everyone tells me no one will remember if my STD's match everything else, I WILL!) My friend never seemed to understand what I wanted and I felt bad for all the changes but at the same time I wanted to scream because they were not getting done.

    In addition, when I went to print them out at Kinko's they only do it in a plain card stock with a sort of glossy finish, I wanted more of a traditional invitation paper, you know, maybe textured with a "softer" finish.. so I ended up buying the paper and printing them myself. My poor FI just didn't know how to handle me this weekend. Now I am sure the font is too small for my grandma to read and I don't dare ask my friend to change it again becuase he might just kill me!

    I also ordered free magnets from visaprint to put in the with STD cards. Do you think that is overkill? I was thinking that since they were free, why not, then maybe I wouldn't worry so much about people tossing the card aside and forgetting about it....

    So here they are, Sorry if the picture size is too big or too small, this is my first time uploading a picture on this site.

      I think they look great! Alot better than anything that I DIY'd.
      Don't stress over the small things. Enjoy your planning.

        I think they look great! I can relate, I stressed about colors and fonts, along with a hundred other tiny details. At the time, they were a huge deal to me, and DH did not understand at all. Now that our wedding is over, I think about all the time I spent worrying and planning, and it makes me laugh. I'm sure I'm the only one who remembers what my STD looked like.

        The point is, I understand how you feel, but someday you might feel the same way, that the tiny details are not as important as you once thought they were.

            I think they look nice as well. And you are totally stressing the details, but you know what? We do do, it's our wedding and it's ok that you want it to be perfect! The thing is knowing when to let a detail slide. I think they look great. The printing does look a little small, but I don't think it looks bad at all. If they are already printed, I wouldn't bother reprinting them.

            I love he design, the colors are great together, I think you did a great job!

                I really like the colors. The only change that I would suggest is making the font larger- but like everyone said already... I think you did a great job!

                  I think they are very pretty! I do understand what you're going through, as I (just like many), had the same stress when doing my STD's and now with working on the invitations. I spent many hours fussing over them in Publisher, worrying about color, font size, the works. It eventually worked out just fine. LOL, of course, now I'm stressing over my DIY invites so I'm back in the boat with you! Don't worry, this will pass and you will make it through alive! I promise!!

                    I think they are gorgeous-- and I think we all have bridal meltdowns over things like these.
